    I wouldn't say Phantom of the Opera is REALLY a horror movie (and I'm not referring to the musical). It's mostly suspense . . . but I love it, too.

    I think that the Japanese are the only ones who can do horror films nowadays and actually be good at it! Of course, translation ruins them, but why can't we have a horror with subtitles?!

    Well for it's day Phantom I think would have been a horror movie, after all he's (we are talking Lon Chaney, not A.L.Webber) always in the running for scariest old movie monsters. By todays standards you are correct, no he is not a monster, and no it is not a horror movie. But by the old standards I believe he is considered a monster, and it would be considered a horror movie.

    Now as the subtitles go, I have no problem with them. As long as they are done well.

    My sister always buys me the American remakes, for the holidays. She gets so excited, cause she KNOWS she has gotten me something I will like, because I loved the Japanese version. I have never had the heart to tell her that I don't really like the remakes. It would burst her bubble and break her heart.

    I'm sorry, but "Dark Water" can not compare with the original Japanese version.

    I like the old movies more! Scream, Friday the 13th, Child's Play, Pet Sementary, The nightmare on elm street, Halloween are all classics. I like those movies. I love horror movies!The movies today r not very good. And there r too many remakes of old movies.
